Happy New Year Everybody!
It’s time to celebrate you! Yes, you!
Before you make any resolutions this year, decide to be you. Take off your mask and just be you, the real you.
To quote Dr. Seuss, ”Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
In the next few days, I hope you can find some quiet time to reflect back on 2017. Start by writing a list of all your accomplishments. If you have trouble remembering, look back through your journal or calendar. Give yourself credit for what you have done. When you stop and remember all the good moments from last year, it will help you move into 2018 with confidence and grace.
Now think about the New Years resolutions you made in the past. Be honest with yourself. How many of them actually stuck? Research shows that only 8% of people who make resolutions achieve them. So what do they do differently than you? They don’t give up when they slip up.
Vince Lombardi said, ”It isn’t whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up.”
Resiliency is the key. Do something different this year. Don’t turn a slip-up into an excuse to give up.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your resolutions:
1. Be very clear about your resolution. Think about it. Decide what one habit you would really love to change.
2. Write it down and write why you want to change that habit. Put some emotion into it. Imagine what your life would be like if you could change that habit. Write about how different your life would be. Feel what it would feel like. Really feel it!
3. Tell your friends and family what you decide to do so that they can support you.
4. Congratulate yourself with little rewards.
5. Forgive yourself if you slip up and get right back on track.
6. Remember, don’t turn a relapse into a failure. When you get knocked down, get back up and start all over again.
Don’t forget if you need any help, I am here for you. During the month of January, Bonnie Templeman of Embrace One Change and I will be giving advice and tips on how you can look and feel better in 2018. Be sure to stop by and get a jump start on living younger longer. We will help you get out of that rut of feeling sick and tired, and show you how to start to feel healthy, vibrant and alive so that you can enjoy every moment of your new year.
The hardest part of making any good habit is just starting. With each new habit you can live a healthier life for the rest of your life.
God bless you with a blissful new year filled of abundance and love!
